Apprenticeship and Traineeship Programmes

Our Apprenticeship and Traineeship programmes provide the perfect opportunity for you to achieve qualifications and skills whilst in employment (Apprenticeships) or undertaking work experience (Traineeships).

How does it work?

For Traineeships and Apprenticeships, you get to spend four days a week in employment or work placement and one day at college. This means that you will be able to earn as you learn.

Working in partnership with Merthyr Tydfil Aspire Shared Apprenticeship scheme 

The ASPIRE Shared Apprenticeship Programme is a partnership project, as part of which, apprentices
are employed by Merthyr Tydfil County Borough Council, trained by The College Merthyr Tydfil and placed
with a host firm for the duration of the two to three-year apprenticeship programme.

“The project aims to enhance skills development within the manufacturing and engineering
companies to help support and develop business growth whilst at the same time helping to tackle unemployment and provide aspirational opportunities for young people across the county borough.
